Scott Tasker Folsom Scholarship

What does receiving this award or scholarship mean to you?
Beyond the financial relief that this scholarship provides, receiving this scholarship holds a lot of sentimental value to me. Often we hear the saying "it takes a village to raise a child," but I also believe it takes a village to train a future doctor. Our education and growth would not be possible without the countless doctors, professors, patients, and other students from which we learn, but it still doesn't end there. Every single person who has supported me throughout this journey is another person who forms part of my village, and I am deeply grateful for everyone in it for being a constant source of encouragement and inspiration! Thank you for helping me make my dream a reality!

What are your plans following graduation?
After graduation, I intend to complete a residency with a focus in pediatrics.
